Hey all,

As I've been playing/coaching here in the Chinese amateur league, I've definitely seen my fair share of gloves. Any thing from $800 jaw-dropping Mizuno customs (the currency takes a told, mind you), to people who are willing to pay 3x the price for an average Nokona cause its made in the US.
One thing I admire from his bizarre glove market, is players are usually less brand-concerned which means you see a lot of smaller Asian brands, yet surprisingly good gloves.

Anyway, once I learn how to post pictures I can hopefully show more from this part of the world!


- Chris

Welcome Chris!

There are actually some really good gloves with obscure brands - probably manufactured at factories that make the same glove and slap a well known brand one them. It's just like the bicycle market - you can spend $4000 on a Specialized, Cannondale, etc, or you can go to a website like bikesdirect.com and get a Motobecan, etc (which is the same frame built at the same factory with a smaller brand name) for half the price.

Evolution of business is fun!
